and richard nixon, overwhelming george mcgovern. each of those elections, one of the candidates failed to capture the spirit of the american voting public and the winner had the advantage of a weak opponent. franklin roosevelt won his second term landslide because of his huge popularity. however, in many more presidential elections, the candidates are in a pitted battle to present themselves as the one best capable of serving the country, with the winner walking off with a modest majority. there is customary wisdom, a campaign between the incumbent president and his opponent will be either a referendum on the first term of the president or a judgment of which candidate will be the better leader. is there really a difference between these two considerations? does it not boil down to judging the leadership skill of the incumbent based on his effectiveness during his first term versus the unknown leadership skills of the challenger? it is easy to point to the national security or economic consequencess or consequent impact on the ratings of an incumbent as the indicator of the popular vie

, democrat tim kaine and republican george allen are duking it out for this senate seat being 78cateed by jim webb. he's the democrat that beat george allen four years ago. allen was governor from 1994 to 1998 during a time of economic growth in both the state and the nation. kaine was governor of virginia from 2006 to 2010 and guided the commonwealth through a sharp economic downturn. now, here's where both stand on key positions. kaine says he would allow the bush-era tax cuts to expire for incomes above $500,000 a year. that is twice the level proposed by the white house. he also supports taking away subsidizes for big oil companies. now, george allen favors lowering taxes for job-creating businesses. he would also like to simplify the tax code for individuals, possibly even offering a flat tax option for individual taxpayers. now right now the polls give kaine a three-point lead in virginia over allen, but that is within the margin of error, so right now it's looking like anybody's race. we are back at the election wall in 30 minutes. we're going to give you an update in the race for same

as george said to reflect on this story. i mean this is remarkable american story. and what he, what rerepresents personally but also the changing america that has put him in this place. i think that that's why people get so excited about it because they recognize themselves in him in a way they never recognized themselves in any leader before because it was never there before. now his tweet, we are all in this together is something he really needs to deliver on because we have to come out of this election being much more unified than the way we've gone into the election. >> there's another reason why this is historic in addition to the obvious one, this is a president who had running for re-election with with high unemployment, a low approval rating for much of this year, and a majority of the people here thought the country is going in the wrong track. by any measure, you would have thought he was heading for defeat and he won. we have never seen it happen on any of those marks to be that low wing re-election in the modern era. . >> as we look at this celebration, i want to think
